Junk in the Trunk

2001 Volkswagen Golf GL 2dr Hatchback (2.0L 4cyl 5M)


People... Save yourselves! I went with
a VW Golf because of their historically
good track record. Let me tell you,
history did not repeat itself here. The
dealership I purchased the Golf from
forgot to install a 'block heater'
(which is required for our cold
winters). I have had the radio replaced
twice, difficulties with the windshield
wipers hoses, passenger window falls,
heater fan replaced, and most recently
the airbag indicator light has
malfunctioned. Not only has the car
been 'a piece' but the dealership I
have had to deal with has been very
difficult. I think that car sales are
boosted by a clever marketting scheme.

Best Features

Good gas mileage

Worst Features

Deal with the electrical problems. Plan out a service regime that does not inconvience owners, rather helps them deal with their fraustrations.
